Hmm, I got called arrogant today. Not in an offensive way so much (when considering the person it was coming from and that they probably did not intended for it to be offensive) but it started me thinking anyway.
I had been listening to a Legend of Zelda medley that has a very pretty violin part. This along with the fact that I’ve spent a lot of time recently listening to one of my favorite songs from WHR which also has a rather impressive violin part and I made the off handed comment, “I would like to learn to play the violin.”
My companion’s response was something along the lines of, “You think you can just pick something like that up? It’s one of the most difficult instruments to learn to play. You’re so damn…”
You get the drift.
But I hadn’t said that I could or had any intention of doing any such thing, only that I would like to (in a perfect world). And, for the record, I would, if I could. However, at this particular moment in time, I can’t, and I admit freely, that even if were I to try, there is a very large possibility (much more likely than the alternative, anyway) that I would never be any good.
But I would still enjoy trying.
And apparently that makes me arrogant.
I’m not sure what I think about that.
